In the ever-evolving landscape of denim, innovation and craftsmanship intersect at Naked & Famous Denim, where we're constantly redefining the conventional. Our latest creation, the King of Slub 2, is a stellar example of this relentless pursuit, setting a new standard in the world of textured denim.
The King of Slub 2, a heavyweight 23oz Japanese Selvedge Denim, is the esteemed successor to our groundbreaking King of Slub. This new iteration features our custom-developed "King of Slub" yarn, the result of over two years of dedicated innovation. This uniquely crafted yarn, with its pronounced slubby texture, is incredibly uneven – super thick in some parts and thinner in others – creating an exquisite tactile experience. The King of Slub 2 enhances our original design with a natural colored ecru weft, adding a warm, earthy undertone that beautifully complements warmer tones.
Unsanforized, the King of Slub 2 has not undergone pre-shrinking. Much like the early days of denim, expect these jeans to shrink considerably after the first wash. We recommend consulting our sizing charts on the Tate + Yoko and Naked & Famous Denim NYC product pages for the best fit. By skipping the sanforization process, we've retained more of the slubby texture, as sanforization, which involves compressing the denim, can flatten a slubby texture.
The thickness and unevenness of the yarn allow for irregular indigo absorption, resulting in beautifully fading denim. Over time, the indigo fades, revealing a gradient of shades and crafting a high-contrast, three-dimensional textured fade. The heft of the denim further accentuates your wear patterns, offering a captivating fading experience.
In terms of details, the King of Slub 2 features antique copper hardware, a thick Cuba tan leather patch, a hidden selvedge coin pocket, and a button fly. At the hem, you'll find a classic, yet beefy, thick red line selvedge ID.
Crafted in our own factory, the last remaining jeans factory in Canada, we maintain rigorous control over every stage of production. As owners and operators, we ensure each pair of jeans embodies our unwavering commitment to quality.
The King of Slub 2 is more than just a pair of jeans; it symbolizes our continuous endeavor to transform the familiar into something extraordinary. This innovation isn't about creating novelty but about refining our knowledge and experience until it transcends into the extraordinary.
